SA’s licence printing machine has been fixed.
The country’s only licence printing machine has been repaired, according to the Minister of Transport. The machine broke down in November last year and has left motorists wondering if their vehicles would still be covered if they have been driving with an expired driving licence card.
As long as you can prove that you have taken reasonable steps to renew your licence, claims should not be rejected based on the expiration of a driving licence card. Proof of efforts to renew your card, such as a temporary driver’s licence or the renewal receipt, can be accepted for claim validation purposes.
The Driving Licence Card Account (DLCA) is making good work of catching up with the backlog of licence applications and renewals caused by the breakdown. If you have not done so yet, we suggest that you begin the renewal application process to stay on the right side of the traffic officials – and your policy.
